The young man was travelling in a car in Delhi’s Southeast Delhi’s Sarita Vihar area. The groom Bhupendra was travelling with one more person in his Hyundai i20. As there is an ongoing nationwide lockdown in the country there were no cars on the roads as people are requested to stay inside to avoid the spread of Corona virus.
There were police officers on duty on roads to ensure that people are not getting out on roads unnecessarily. Two policemen who were on lockdown duty spotted flames coming out of the car and stopped the car immediately. Police officers safely moved the groom and the other person out of the vehicle and within minutes, the wholes car was engulfed in flames.
The road was empty which is why the officers on duty were able to spot the flame in the car easily. If it had been a regular day then the thing could have got worse as there would have been other vehicles on the road too. The police noticed that Bhupendra was wearing his wedding attire when he got out and was also wearing a mask.
The police after talking to the groom came to know that they were travelling to Okhla which is a nearby place from Sarita Vihar where the car caught fire. The police officers then took the groom and the other person in their vehicle to the wedding venue. The exact reason why the car caught fire is not known so far. In order to avoid such incidents it is recommended to have detailed checkup and servicing of the car at equal intervals.
